2 new creations today

I wanted to get in a couple of cards today before I have to study for my tests this weekend... i'm training to be certified as a personal trainer through ISSA.  It's a wonderful study at home program and i'm loving it! So on to the cards...

1) My first is a traditional type card using the sketch from made especially for you. And some of my favorite cut files from Lettering Delights, "Curiouser and Curiouser".  I chose Alice to go with my pink frame (I just felt like using pink today) and the mug is cut from a silhouette file I bought a few months ago.  I printed and cut out the banner and circle and put it all together on this card base I made.  It says, "Happy birthday" inside and "Merry unbirthday!" on the banner.

 this card is for a few Challenges so here are their links:
challenge 1: Made Especially for you... using the provided sketch.

2)My second card is 3-D and I found it on Split coast stampers.  I love it so much! I used the 3 colors for the EAD design color challenge for September...

I cut out the monkey using an animal set from Silhouette ran it through my Xyron sticker maker and assembled the box card and the monkey.  I then tied some hemp around the top of the card and I think it adds a nice natural look.  I then added the sentiment  tag cut from the accordion varied mini fold book from silhouette and stamped the sentiment using basic brown ink from Stampin' Up!  You can put mini treats in the box and give it away.  I love 3-D crafting.
This one is going into the EAD design color challenge found at this link:

enjoy! and thanks for all your comments; I love getting comments!
